Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 13:12-13

_ _ every firstling, etc. — the injunction respecting the consecration of the first-born, as here repeated, with some additional circumstances. The firstlings of clean beasts, such as lambs, kids, and calves, if males, were to be devoted to God and employed in sacrifice. Those unclean beasts, as the ass’s colt, being unfit for sacrifice, were to be redeemed (Numbers 18:15).
